Seeking Permission

If you are looking for permission to perform one or more of my poems in forensic competition, consider it granted. You honor me. If you would like to use one of my poems in an educational workshop, lecture, seminar, or other public forum, by all means, you have my blessing. If you are getting married and would like to read one of my poems as part of the service, then I say, “Congratulations!” (You even have my permission to edit my work for the ceremony if you must). The poems are out there, to be used and consumed. Just be sure to credit me and, if possible, include a link to this website.

If you would like to incorporate or use my work in some other context, contact me and we’ll talk about it.
